Yesterday I had road runner hooked up. After confirming it was working with my desktop, I proceeded to set up my ibook/airport base station. during to set up, I deselected the 'distribute IP address' box. The airport works, but now I can't access the base station using the Admin utility. The IP address of the station shows 126.96.36.199. the error message I receive states "...check your tcp/ip...your computer must be on the same subnet as the base station' or something like that. I've changed my TCP/IP setting to match the IP address and subnet of the base station, but still can't access the base station. Any ideas as to what to do short of performing a hard reset? Thanks for all you're help. My goal is to network my desktop mac and ibook to share the cable modem.
